The Baneasa district covers an area of about 25 ha and is part of Sector 1 of the Capital.  Nowadays, the Baneasa district is very much appreciated by the inhabitants and not only, the demand for buying and renting being extremely high, and all this is due to the quality of the district, which is made up of villas and premium buildings. 

The area is crossed by one of the most important traffic arteries of the capital, Bucharest Ploiesti Road, which provides access to National Road 1, Baneasa Airport and Otopeni Airport. 


The Baneasa district, formerly the "Baneasa suburban commune", originated on a portion of the former estate of Maria Bibescu, Countess of Montesquiou-Fézensac.

The name of the village (and later of the commune and the Bucharest district of Baneasa) comes from the wife (baneasa) of the 17th-century Ban Mares. The banker bought parts of the Carstienesti estate (as the village was then called), and after his death the property was increased by his widow. Baneasa never belonged to the Ghica family.
